Members of Javanna Productions M.O.V.E. can participate in after school learning, summer learning, traveling tours and pop up events with the organization year round following an individualized curriculum designed specifically for each member. According to their strengths and artistic discipline, young members are grouped with older members (industry professionals) in organizational community service efforts and productions. Javanna Productions' intergenerational mission creates informal classroom experiences that bring families in the community together for the advocacy and support of social causes. In the past, Javanna Productions has created M.O.V.E. efforts to advocate for causes such as Autism, Celiac Disease, Cancer research, education in rural parts of the world, HIV/AIDS awareness, suicide prevention and anti-substance abuse.
The U.S. K-12 education curriculum often lacks the social and emotional learning that helps students navigate the complexity of their circumstances beyond the classroom. Students eagerly await explanation for the social issues they experience in their homes, in their neighborhoods and on their televisions. An act of police brutality, a mother battling cancer, a school shooting, or a creeping substance abuse addiction takes root in a student's heart and becomes priority. As a result, students are often seeking an outlet for learning that helps them gain control of their emotions, articulate their frustrations and take action. Our
MOVErs provide schools and youth organizations with the resources and platforms necessary to navigate the social issues they are passionate about through creativity and artistic production.
In quarantine our MOVErs are offering online programming to students and preparing to return to our communities with new vigor. Stay Safe! Stay Healthy! Stay Home!

Summer Service Activities - Quantity driven work that empowers and trains people of all ages to engage in volunteerism for a select group of social service agencies, soup kitchens and social good campaigns. Students volunteer alongside a community organizer or leader that exemplifies service and volunteerism. Students will participate in a structured conversation before and after the volunteer effort to solidify themes and promote interest in the organization outside of the classroom. Students will be introduced to a variety of social service organizations and volunteer initiatives in their city (NY - The Covenant House, Queens Community House, Youth Organizing To Save Our Streets, University Settlement, etc.)
Winter Traveling Intensive - Trains a select group of young people to engage in facilitated dialogue for mutual understanding. Students from different M.O.V.E. chapter states will gather (NY, FL, TX, UT) to learn more about the challenges that other communities face. In a traveling learning intensive experience, students will cultivate the skills necessary to help communities navigate polarizing issues. Students will facilitate workshops and assemblies for mutual understanding revealing the differences and commonalities amongst the people they work with.
Summer Traveling Intensive - Trains a select group of young people to practice civic engagement and mutual understanding by introducing them to civically engaged youth in other chapter states (NY, FL, TX, UT) via workshops and campaigning.
